Scott Brown confesses

The lone remaining Republican running for Senate in Massachusetts apparently believes that the flag is as important as American history, the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence.

He admits, "I'm a lightweight. I have no ideas to actually make America better. All I care about is window-dressing."

The flag is a symbol, a symbol of all the ideals that Massachusetts educators already teach.

Maybe, if Brown's bullshit proposal passes, we can teach our elementary students that making a fetish of the flag is not the American ideal. Maybe we can teach them to care for the flag better than all the flag-wavers whose flags grow tattered and dirty from neglect.

Or would that be too political?
